Sue Smales short bio

Traditionally a painter, I moved into sculpture aaround 2015. I generally work with nature's discards such as bark, seedpods, and other plant materials, which are what inspires a form to work from. I also make use of manufactured "rubbish" purchased from recycling centres and bits and pieces from my personal collection of things that don't make landfill.
